Tucker Bowen's Distortion of Washington's Personality
27 July 2010 | by jm5023See all my reviews

Tucker Bowen's _Real George Washington_ digs in the graveyard of history to uncover evidence to support the presuppositions of Twentieth-Century liberal intellectualism. Bowen presents a picture of Washington that appears to be sketched by draft dodgers who sat on the sidelines during the Vietnam War and viewed the expansion of Classical Athens through the lenses of English bourgeois social reform and Marxist-Leninism. The result is a distortion of Washington's personality.

To gain a more accurate and balanced perception of a boy who lost his earthly father at the age of ten and grew up to become America's most indispensable man, the student of history should read _The Real George Washington_: part I: George Washington: The Man Who United America and part II: Timeless Treasures from George Washington published in Volume 3 of the American Classic Series by the National Center for Constitutional Studies in 2008. Jay A. Parry and Andrew M. Allison present a chronological narrative of Washington's activities from childhood through the French and Indian War, his two retirements and his death. With W. Cleon Skousen, they present selected quotes from Washington's writings in Part II. The full flavor of Washington's written record can be found in _George Washington's Sacred Fire_ by Peter A. Lillback (2006). These authors unveil the great dramatic actions of America's First President and the role he played in the Great American Symphony that produced the harmonious music of the American Federal Republic.
